Estonian delegation meeting with Djibouti’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Mr. Mahmoud Ali Youssouf

This week, Mr. Daniel Schaer, Ambassador-at-Large and Special Diplomatic Representative of the Estonian President for Africa and Ms. Kaisa Mitt-Alvarez, counsellor at the UN Security Council Task Force of the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, are visiting Djibouti as part of the Estonian campaign for a UN Security Council non-permanent member seat.

The Estonian delegation met with Djibouti’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Mr. Mahmoud Ali Youssouf and Minister for Communication, Post and Telecommunications Mr. Abdi Youssouf Sougueh on 4 and 5 June 2018.

They discussed bilateral relations, opportunities for cooperation and Estonia’s bid for a UN Security Council non-permanent member seat.

The Estonian delegation also visited the EU Ambassador in Djibouti Mr. Adam Kulach, who gave an overview of the relations and cooperation between Djibouti and the European Union.

Djibouti’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Communication noted that Djibouti is interested in learning more from Estonia’s experience in e-government and e-solutions.

Representatives of Djibouti have attended the annual Tallinn e-governance conference for several years and would like to intensify cooperation with Estonian ICT companies. The ministers remarked that two states like Estonia and Djibouti, which are of similar size and population, should cooperate more.

The Estonian Delegation introduced Estonia’s campaign to become a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council in 2020-2021.

The representatives of Djibouti welcomed Estonia’s objectives for the UN Security Council and expressed hope that Estonia would become a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council after the vote in June 2019.

The Djiboutian Foreign Minister underlined the importance that small states are able to participate in the work of the UN Security Council and that every state has the right to serve as a member of the UN Security Council.
